“Just shocking. But also, (we have) to focus on Caleb (Farley) and his family and what we can do to support them and be here for them,” Vrabel added

“I’m just praying for Caleb,” running back Derrick Henry said. “We were probably the last ones in the locker room last night, just hanging around. I just found out the news, and we’ll keep him in our prayers and we all send our condolences to him and his family. It’s a tragic situation. I don’t want to speak too much on it, because I don’t know the details. I just couldn’t describe the way he’s probably feeling right now.”
